The cover design is your book’s most important marketing tool.
To drive sales, your book’s cover needs to attract the right readers by clearly showing what kind of genre it belongs to. A book for children, for example, will typically include illustrations that anyone can recognize as meant for young readers, and the same applies to book covers in other genres. Beyond illustrations, your book cover designer will also use a number of other graphic elements to show your book’s subject matter, mood, and tone. It’s not as simple as slapping a logo on the cover: this project requires an artistic process, beginning from a consultation with the author, progressing to initial sketches and drawings, and resulting in a book cover design that accurately reflects your book’s value as a product.
